Course Description

Three (3) Day

“A shot is rarely taken in the prone.”
– Josh Stabler (Hog Saddle)

This is especially true for the Law Enforcement Sniper in an urban or rural environment. The ability to take a shot regardless of the terrain is a powerful tool to have. The LE Tripod Course is designed to familiarize the police sniper with the fundamentals of shooting off of a tripod along with advanced tripod techniques. All of the training is based off of real-world scenarios experienced by our cadre in the field. All courses are taught by Law Enforcement Snipers who have intimate knowledge of tripod shooting supported with real world experience.
